LOW OWNERSHIP, 50K ORIGINAL MILES, SOUTHERN TRUCK, 5.0L V8, AUTO, PB/PS/PW/PD AC
How about a pickup truck that's old enough to be considered a classic, yet modern enough to adapt to almost any practical application? That's exactly what you have in this 1986 Ford F150 XLT Lariat. This black beauty has only been in two families since new, and with 50K actual miles on the odometer, it likely has years and years of life left in it.
This is one of those vehicles that always invites you back for a second look, and you'll be glad it did. We all know that a nice black paint job looks great on anything with wheels. But an ebony finish has never shown better than it does on this super sanitary short bed. It's a perfect color choice for the boxy shape and sharply defined lines of the seventh generation F-series body style. The truck was actually repainted about 10 years ago, but the finish has held up extremely well. It has retained its luster and shows no major flaws. Of course, a heaping helping of chrome is one of the features that emboldens the XLT Lariat package. The bumpers and trim on this F150 are in excellent shape and have kept their mirror-like finish. The cosmetics have been further enhanced with a few add-ons: a spotlight, step bars, chrome bed rails, and driving lights on the front bumper. Twin fuel filler doors signify that this pickup is equipped with dual gas tanks. The inside of the bed is pristine with no dents, dings or major scuffs. Factory sport wheels look great against the ebony paint job, and the 235/70R15 Uniroyal radials achieve the proper stance. This is a good looking truck by anyone's standards!
Check out the cab and you'll see that the interior is all original and in decent shape for its age. Plush burgundy upholstery is the perfect complement to the exterior paint. It's a very attractive color combination. The cloth seat is just a bit faded, but there are no rips or tears. More importantly, it is wide enough to comfortably seat three adults. The carpet is really nice with no stains, the headliner is tight, and the door panels are in very good condition. The dash shows no blemishes with the exception of a couple of small cracks around the speaker. Accessories include tilt, cruise, A/C, stereo, and power windows and locks. Back in the day, who would have ever dreamed that the interior of a pickup truck would be this nice?
Lift the hood, and you'll find everything intact and in its proper position. The 5.0 fuel-injected engine is completely stock and has been well-maintained throughout its life. These small block V8 power plants have been around for decades in one form or another, and are considered to be among the most reliable motors ever produced by the Blue Oval. The 5.0 has plenty of torque for pulling, but still has enough muscle to move this F150 down the road at cruising speed without a hint of hesitation. And it actually gets pretty decent fuel mileage, thanks in part to an automatic overdrive transmission and conservative rear end gearing. The truck looks really good underneath with no significant rust. The steering linkages are nice and snug, and all of the suspension parts are in good condition. And to top it all off, the crisp rumble of the dual exhaust speaks with confidence and authority.
There is a reason why the Ford F-series has been America's best seller for 40 consecutive years. You'll find an awful lot of truck to be had right here. Now is the time to lasso this sporty little Lariat and make it yours. Call today!
